Subject: listen to this show
Subject: Worth it for DS>Stella Blue
Subject: Steal your Face
I guess the tune became so big the opening set couldn't hold it anymore.
It would have been interesting to see this in the 1st set closer spot.
He's Gone really benefits from its placement here, no pressure to take it anywhere and the jam is pretty wide open...
I remember seeing a show somewhere in the late 80's with he's Gone opening the 2nd set. Or maybe it was just my imagination? Might have been R.F.K.
Anyway, the Dead sound different here not Europe 72 without Pigpen and not fully integrated with this line-up that would just kill it in 1973 behind the Wall of Sound.
Not big on the drop-outs but thankful to give this a listen. probably like a 4 for me all around but i am sure if I had been at this show it would have been over the top.
As already mentioned Dark Star >Stella. I really do find it to be a different groove in the Dark Star!
I dig the Tomorrow is Forever in the closing ballad slot.

Every now and then, actually fairly often, you come across a Dead song that makes your heart skip a beat and quiver in your chest. And this Dark Star is one of them.
My buddy downloaded Fire on the Mountain onto his phone and it just so happened to be one of those life-changing versions. Ive never been able to find that file anywhere else on the internet and I've searched and searched for it. Nothing.

Subject: 40 years ago tonight, It seems like all this life was just a dream . . .
Love the great ballroom sound, and even though according to Bobby, "Pigpen is convalasing from multiple, and serious illnesses, and he will probably be back with us after the first of the year" the band play amazing. Nothing stopping the train this night ! GD'72 @ Winterland ? 5*****
In the end there's just a song . . .
Subject: 1/2-Step Good, Dark Star way beyond Great
Thanks dusborne, Great Job on a great show.
